***STOP PRESS Tini was awarded her 1st CC (3 make a UK Champion) at Leeds Champ Show July 2016 under breed specialist Carol Ann Carlton ****

Martini or Tini to her friends is an outgoing traditional wheaten ridgeback who loves everyone and everything with great energy. She bounced into the show ring at the end of 2011 and we finally managed to get her to keep at least one foot on the ground when moving round the ring at 12 months after her bouncy beginnings in the show ring.

We are proud to say that she was placed in puppy & junior at every show attended in large classes & with some stiff competition.

Tini was awarded the Reserve Challenge Certificate at 25 months of age by breed specialist Jackie Parker, thus giving her her Stud Book number & qualifying her for Crufts for life. She was awarded her second Reserve Challenge Certificate by respected all rounder judge Frank Kane at the age of 4 - her second time in the ring after having her first litter.

"4 years wheaten of lovely type & size & very good movement. Lovely head & eye. She has breed type, correct in size proportions, bone & substance & a feminine quality head. RCC." Frank Kane

Her Critique from Windsor judge Jackie Parker

"Yet another bitch of correct size. Very balanced standing, with strong topline, tight feet, good angulation with muscular thighs and strong hocks. Best mover in a very good class. RCC."

Her Critique from RR Club of Scotland judge Paul Singleton

"1 Nuthouse Never Say Never, by far the best overall in the class for type, soundness & balance. Feminine head & expression. Good ribbing & reasonable front. Good top & underlines. Moderate hindquarters. Really made the most of herself on the move with a good precise footfall"

Her Critique from LKA judge Graham Hill

Yearling Bitch 1. Hicks’ Nuthouse Never Say Never, very nicely constructed junior bitch who impressed with her sound purposeful movement, typical attractive head & lovely expression, sound true front, good bone & pasterns, well bodied, firm in substance & muscle, moderate angulation in hindquarters with good width across the thigh, good honest bitch.
